The film is based on Japanese folklore of the Ainu in northern Japan, which tells of a race of tiny people “Colobockle” who live amongst humans without being hardly noticed.

I projected animations of the people playing around in my old house in Quito-Ecuador using a portable projector and simply filmed by a DSL camera using Video Mapping techniques and no CGI was used. Check out "Making of" at
